The Starline Gallery In Harvard Hosts Monthly Art Show

More than 700 art enthusiasts travel to The Starline Gallery in Harvard once a month to take in the exhibits and events hosted during the gallery’s “4th Fridays.”

Fourth Fridays, which open at 6 p.m. the fourth Friday of the month, nine months out of the year, support regional artists by providing a juried mixed art exhibit, juried photo contest, featured artist solo exhibit and more. A $5 entry fee covers admission, bottled water and light appetizers; a cash bar also is available.

Angela Swan of Lakewood is an artist who has been featured during 4th Fridays and a volunteer who helps the event take shape each month.

“I think one of the coolest things about it is we’re showcasing regional artists in an event that we try really hard to make fun,” Swan says. “So, it’s a happening. It’s something to do in McHenry County on a regular basis, but it’s reworked every month. So, it’s not the same live music, it’s not the same artwork and it’s not the same space. It’s fresh.”
